“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God” (Mt 5: 9).  If this Beatitude speaks to you, come join us!

Pax Christi SJN is a parish chapter of Pax Christi, the international Catholic peace movement.  Pax Christi strives to create a world that reflects the Peace of Christ by exploring, articulating, and witnessing to the call of Christian nonviolence.  This work begins in personal life and extends to communities of reflection and action to transform structures of society.  Pax Christi rejects war, preparations for war, and every form of violence and domination.  It advocates primacy of conscience, economic and social justice, and respect for creation.
